Ah right, thanks.  I installed the xfce4-terminal package (0.8.10-1) and
couldn't reproduce it there, either.

Do you have any Debian Sid system (all of my computers are running
some variant of Sid; most are Debian, and one is Devuan)?

My days of running unstable are in the past, I'm afraid, at least until
I get moving on joining Colin Watson as groff package maintainer, at
which time I'll have to get comfortable with it again.  But before that,
we gotta release groff 1.23.

I think it might be a good idea at this point to see if we can narrow
down which terminal escape sequences are working incorrectly.

What do you see if you run the following shell command?

$ printf '\e[1mbold\e[7minversebold\e[27mbold\e[22mnormal\e[0m\n'


Heh, I just installed three virtual machines: debian stable, testing, and unstable. Guess what? None of them reproduce the issue.

This is very weird. AFAIR, the only difference that I have compared to a clean Sid install, is that I have groff(1) from source, but you also have it. What else can I have that may be doing this weird thing?
